square blocks and eventually scaled that back to 11 ethstreet but the conflict between the night clubs and the neighbors got out of hand. countless clubs were taken to court. the residents in the area primarily the newer residents were certainly used to quieter surroundings and they certainly had the means and the law on their side to take many venues into court. on the other hand, the entertainment community fought back harshly when they felt the clubs were under siege and lead to at its worse a clear case of arson on the 15 unit residential building that was under construction at corner of 11th and harrison street just before it was ready to open it burned down to the foundation. the 1990 rezoning is predicated on opening south of market up to a denser residential population. you hear the same thing all the time, and that is a foundation of the current western soma community plan before you. we were actually given some pretty firm numbers of residential units that we should produce, and in fact in the eir we even created a higher growth alternative at director's ram's request to meet

increase residential capacity along 11 ethstreet in anyway and i think that is very important to note, 11 ethstreet. we don't increase the capacity for residential in anyway and as cory mentioned again there are maybe one or two soft sites. there is the famous purple building. i don't know. maybe one more soft site where there is potential for residential development. nobody got everything they wanted throughout our process but this say community plan, not an entertainment plan. all things considered i think the entertainment industry did pretty darn well. let me kind of reiterate here. western soma already has the greatest concentration of night time entertainment in the entire city. a change from non conforming to has a right for night clubs won't allow the night clubs to be any noisier. down zoning the neighbors will not stop them from complaining. the sally proposal that cory presented violates fundamental principles of fairness that are the basis for the western soma plan. buffers around existing clubs are impractical because they would imply to the entire mug area and drastically re

. a number of alley improvements on various areas. also greening of the 12th corridor. 12 ethstreet is a pretty wide street. it actually doesn't get a lot of traffic and there is a lot of opportunity as an entry way into the western portion of western soma to green that significantly and grate green scape for residents and businesses in that area, and then also a child care facility within western soma which is definitely needed, and calls out specifically near eighth and ringgold but a facility in general is definitely needed. so in the same vain currently on the eastern neighborhoods cac there are four non voting members from western soma that sit on the committee. with the adoption of this plan and eastern neighborhoods part of the plan the vote members would be voting member exercise go from 19 to 19 members. >> >> the board supervisors would increase the appointments from nine to 11 and district six getting the extra two and mayor's pointees increase from six to eight and at large numbers increase from two to three so that say run down of some of the details in the zoning and t

that within the aws pinses of the 11 ethstreet zoning. >> yes. essentially across the street from slims. >> okay. it's one of the spaces on the map that is marked in whatever color we're using -- >> it's actually not designated as a soft site because it is developed right now as the purple building but the proposal is to demolish that building and develop it as housing. >> the other consideration i might be interested in learning about is some kind of a middle ground if a project was begun 10 or five years ago and grandfathered if the investor decided to go go ahead and what they were doing and housing and good instillation i am not opposed to that grandfathering thing but to encourage more housing in the future for what is in process i don't know if that is a good idea. it's a fairly small zone and we have the rest of the area for housing. although the other thing that concerns me a little bit is when you look at some of the zoning the sally apparently does not allow housing. am i correct about that -- housing or office? and you have areas that are pretty much pdr and i would hav
